This is all fine and dandy as I got a bit of seat time, but dang it! I am sick of this wet heavy crap! My new blower on the LGT works AWSOME! But that little diesel is getting a killer workout, blows the stuff at least 50' but she's rolling coal the entire time. Dang it, but it sure runs good! And the cab, oh.... How sweet it is! Happy happy! Makes a miserable time enjoyable.

40's and rain here. Only thing I can do with my tractors is stare at them thru the window.
Glad you guys got a little white stuff to play in.

Well guys, as fun as it looks........
5 min after i started it back up and started blowing the old H70 thrown the rod cap,.....I thanked it for the many years of service it provided for many people and bid it farewell to engine heaven, rolled it off to the side and started shoveling,....
This will be blower no. 2 this winter and ironicly it really has not snowed that much, this is our 2nd large snowstorm so far but has been unusally heavy hard pack stuff compared to previous years.

Back to square one......i hate Tecumsehs,.....

That stinks Jesse! Do you have a donor engine you can scab in there to finish out the season? I hate shoveling! It's not getting any earsier as the years roll by either!

I was reading your first post, seeing all the pictures, and I noted how it looked like wet heavy snow. That brought to mind the four Ariens walk behinds that I killed in wet heavy snow. I always bought used at the local Ariens / Toro place. Four went under at the end of my driveway or a neighbors. Now am very careful at the end of the driveway.

I felt really bad after reading your followup on the demise of your Ariens. I hope it wasn't at the end of the driveway. I hope you get lots for being called in and get the repairs soon.

Man I'm sorry to here that about your ariens :( If you need help locating one or need a hand let me know. I was hoping to get a little of the snow so I could test my blower and tractor plow, but it just covered the ground them switched right over to rain. But don't hesitate to ask for anything, I don't live that far from you.

You'll have to find another engine for it. If you could graft in an hm100 it wouldn't be working so hard and should last you a long time. We've got 4-6" on the way tonight and it will be dry snow for a change. Of course it is going to rain on Saturday. Another month and winter will be shot for another year.

Thanks a bunch guys, i got it shoveled out, im not shocked it let loose, H70's do it all the time, typical side-cap problem, it was a 1974 and did not burn oil so i was sorry to see it go. I do have another engine to put on, i could upgrade to the 2A016 twin cylinder, the twin snapped the casting on the other Arines but what the heck, let's see how this one holds up.
Time to bring out the cutting disks and welder :thumbs:
